Why study the Master of Organisational Psychology

This program prepares students for organisational psychology practice, focusing on building skills such as critical analysis, problem solving, communication, consultation and organisational change skills. Organisational psychology seeks knowledge of behaviour in organisational settings by systematically studying individual, group and organisational processes. Organisational psychology employs a `scientist-practitioner¿ method of enquiry, first to seek understanding of behaviour within employment contexts, and then to develop techniques and skills which foster employee well-being and organisational effectiveness.
